Mac OS X How this passed through Apple's Mountain Lion testing is beyond me. "If one edits a document, then chooses Save As, then BOTH the edited original document and the copy are saved, thus not only saving a new copy, but silently saving the original with the same changes, thus overwriting the original." Just goes to show: do not mess with my ability to save my stuff. There is no one-size-fits-all for this kind of delicate stuff.

RE[5]: file versioning

Again, I've seen Apple's gear get a lot of praise like yours around the web, it just so happens that the one owned by relatives hasn't been so bullet-proof. So I have to wonder if they were just unlucky, or if it is the guys who praise everything Apple for being indestructible that were lucky.

Since Squaretrade's reports put Apple's laptops on par with others as far as reliability is concerned, I tend to lean towards the later option. After all, if there was a magical way to make consumer electronics more durable, every PC OEM would know about it by now.
